Sontag Shogun & Aaron Martin

Sontag Shogun and Aaron Martin

Somewhere between a lullaby and a dirge, Sontag Shogun takes their lullanoise and tries to find the strange, eery moments that exist within beauty.

Sontag Shogun is an ambient, electronic piano trio comprised of former members from [the] slowest runner [in all the world]. Pooling their influences from modern classical, improvised and ambient musical spheres, they create longform shape-shifting compositions that are at times lush and melodic as well as textural and unpredictable.

Two thirds of the band:Jeremy Young(field recordings, tapes, amplified surfaces) and Ian Temple(electronic piano) collaborated with Cellist Aaron Martin for their show at Pageant : Soloveev Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.

This performance was part of the series called: Fire Museum Presents.

The band’s music is available on their bandcamp page while Aaron Martin’s music is available on his bandcamp page.
